30-year-old Megan Connors, a middle school math teacher at Turkey Creek Middle School in Plant City, Florida, will be relieved of her teaching duties, and likely her teaching license, after information surfaced that she was having an ongoing sexual relationship with a 15-year old boy.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriffâ€™s Office, Ms. Connors had sex â€˜multiple timesâ€™ with the teen and even used her authority as a teacher to pull him out of classes during school hours just to carry out her plans in classrooms of her choosing. At least one other time, however, their sexual liaison happened in the boyâ€™s own bedroom.
Having started working at the school in August, Connorsâ€™ lurid affair with the teen is alleged to have started with kissing, and later fondling, sometime in January. She was removed from her position roughly a week ago.
While the investigation continues, as of right now, it is not believed any other students have been involved.
In a statement given Friday night, Turkey Creek Middle School said, â€œWe are disappointed. We have so many teachers who are doing a great job. This teacher had nothing in her background that indicated any problems. It’s shocking and disappointing.â€
According to The Tampa Tribune, she has been charged with sexual battery, lewd and lascivious battery, and lewd conduct.
